The fight against pro-Russian forces is a priority issue in the country. The head of the Central Staff of the National Corps Maxym Zhorin stated this during his interview for “Politeka Online”.
“Pro-Russian political forces have intensified today, they have begun active work on all levels. That is why we are obliged to react now,” Zhorin said.
According to the head of the Central Staff, this happened because in 2014 they did not create any legal safeguard that would not allow pro-Russian forces to return to the Ukrainian political field.
“The previous government did nothing, and Zelensky’s government gave the green light for their return, as, for example, Andriy Portnov did,” he said.
Maxim Zhorin also emphasized on the importance of responding to the hostile rhetoric of Kremlin projects in Ukraine, because “Russian troops always follow theses on the protection of Russian-speakers.”
